Parker “Excited” To Be Healthy, Bellinger On Losing Streak, Roberts Wants LA To “Simplify”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on!

Giants OF Jarrett Parker talks to us about the impression he is trying to make in September, while Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger and LA manager Dave Roberts answer questions about their 11-game losing streak which finally ended on Tuesday night with a win in San Francisco.

Parker talked to The Sports Virus being healthy again: …“I’m just excited to be back on the field, just being able to be play baseball again. I’ve never had an injury where I’ve been off the field for an extended amount of time so I just really want to be out here and play.”

When Bellinger spoke to The Sports Virus before Tuesday’s game he seemed to know that LA was on the verge of snapping its losing streak: …“It’s just a matter of a few balls that haven’t gone our way. Whenever we get runners on I feel like we’re lining out right at someone, so that’s just how crazy the game is.”

Roberts told The Sports Virus that the recent losing streak has put pressure on his players to try to do more than they should: …“It’s just important for us to simplify. We gotta play better baseball…It’s kind of back to the basics where a lot of things get overlooked at times when things are going really well and right now they’re not. There is a tendency to try to do more, but there are a lot of guys in that clubhouse that have played a lot of years in the big leagues that understand that doing more is not always the right path. We gotta find a way to get it done in all aspects of the game.”

Listen To Parker, Bellinger and Roberts
